  1. Head orientation sensing system

    SBC: APPAREO SYSTEMS LLC            Topic: AF071020

    Appareo Systems, LLC, proposes to develop a functional prototype head-mounted position and orientation system (HPOS). The HPOS will be capable of operating in electromagnetic fields of up to 200 volts/meter and will provide at least one degree of accuracy and at least one degree of resolution at a 60 Hz update rate while providing 3 degree of freedom (DOF) information on head orientation, includi ...

  2. A Low-Cost and Scalable Dielectric Films

    SBC: APPLIED THIN FILMS, INC.            Topic: OSD06EP3

    Compact, high-energy-density capacitors will be the key enabling technology for future pulse-power weapon systems that are being pursued by the DoD. These capacitors convert steady electrical energy into short pulses that are needed to energize loads (required for directed energy weapons). There have been recent advances in chemical double layer capacitors, leading to major advances in energy stor ...

  3. High-Temperature, Flexible Inorganic Dielectric Films for High Energy Density Capacitors

    SBC: APPLIED THIN FILMS, INC.            Topic: OSD06EP3

    High temperature, high energy density capacitors will serve a critical technology path enabling military applications such as power pulse weaponry, power conditioning devices, as well as many aerospace, automotive and petroleum applications. With DoD’s next-generation initiatives toward electrically-powered propulsion systems, capacitor performance limits needs to be much enhanced, particularly ...

  4. Surface-Enhanced Detection of Molecular and Biomolecular Species

    SBC: BIOTOOLS, INC.            Topic: AF05T025

    This Phase II STTR project continues the development of two prior successful Phase I STTR projects aimed at developing surface-enhance Raman optical activity (ROA) on near-infrared tuned gold-coated nanoshells for the detection of chiral molecules, biological molecules and higher biological structures and organisms for applications in the areas of biological research, pharmaceutical development an ...

  5. Development of commercially useable codes to simulate aluminized propellant combustion, and related issues

    SBC: BUCKMASTER RESEARCH            Topic: AF06T012

    We propose to develop marketable codes which will: model the morphology of heterogeneous propellants (a packing code); calculate the thermal and mechanical properties of such a morphology or pack; simulate the combustion of the pack; predict the statistics of aluminum agglomeration on the burning pack surface; simulate the flight of these agglomerates through the chamber, after surface detachment, ...

  6. Terminally Guided Robots and Robotic Applications in Confined Spaces

    SBC: COMPOSITE CUTTER TECHNOLOGY            Topic: AF063C011

    This proposal focuses on the need to develop a cutting tool for the robotic drilling process. We have enlisted ComauPico as a partner in this venture and all testing shall be carried out in their robotic drilling testing cell by their engineers. This will allow us to get first hand information in robotic drilling that we would not have otherwise been available. In ComauPico’s recent testing, it ...

  7. Time-Domain BLT Solver for Electromagnetic Coupling to Cables and Circuits

    SBC: DELCROSS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF06004

    A engineering software product is proposed with unprecedented capabilities for rigorously predicting electromagnetic coupling to networks of multi-conductor transmission lines and nonlinear circuits located in realistic enclosures (e.g., circuit board cabinets, buildings, vehicles). Simultaneous time-domain solution of electromagnetic phenomena at three different scales (i.e., exterior - large, ca ...

  8. Advanced Multijunction Solar Cell & Concentrator System Development for DOD Terrestrial and Space Applications

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: OSD07ES4

    The objective of this Phase I effort is to investigate the feasibility of using quaternary alloys based on the established II-VI compounds HgTe, CdTe and ZnTe to generate crystals with the desired bandgaps for solar cells and the use of additional down-converting glass plates to allow for enhanced absorption. A number of theoretical calculations predict efficiencies that are significantly higher t ...

  9. Wavelength and Polarization Agile Infrared Detectors based on HgCdTe

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF07T027

    Modern seekers need to detect, recognize, identify and track a variety of autonomously guided munitions under a wide spectrum of conditions and countermeasures. We propose the implementation of hyperspectral and polarization-sensitive techniques based on HgCdTe infrared detectors to improve the accuracy of target detection for these seekers. In the proposed hyperspectral system, the HgCdTe detecto ...

  10. Demonstration of Novel Oxide Materials As Sulfur-Tolerant SOFC Anodes

    SBC: Functional Coating Technology, LLC            Topic: OSD06EP1

    Functional Coating Technology LLC, working with Northwestern University, has recently developed new anodes that are either all-oxide materials or oxides that contains a small amount of a nano electro-catalyst metal, e.g., Ru, formed by a novel self-assembly process. Since these anodes work well without Ni, they have potential for substantially improved sulfur tolerance. Prior works have shown that ...
